The Countdown Continues
10 ... 9 ... 8 ...
How has so much time passed? We're not sure how it has gone by so quickly. With three conventions in very quick succession (we just got back from PAX Unplugged, the final convention of the season), time, as the song kind of says, ain't on our side.
We have received proofs of the new ship, which you can see below. They're looking fantastic, so we approved the production of them and they are currently being made.
We are finishing the graphic files, which will be sent to the printers before the middle of next week. We fell behind in creating them due to some personal issues (seems when you're at the point of production, personal issues always come into play. We didn't mean for them to, but they have). These include the new variant cards, new variant player boards, the files for the VERY thick player boards, and the space boards with the UV Spots to make the stars twinkle as you fly through space.
We'll have some images to show you in the next couple of weeks (it doesn't take long to get the digital proofs). And, if all goes well, by the first week in January, the files will be approved and production will begin.
Our biggest challenge comes from the various translations that have to happen with the rule book. The main book will be completed, with all the updates, new graphics, and variants added, by the end of next week (fingers crossed).
We'll keep you up to date as we continue to move forward on production. You'll have another update before the Christmas holidays.
